    Attitudes to childcare have been examined in a number studies, both comparative and national, but never with migrants as the main focus. Migrants’ attitudes to childcare are an important subject, as they come with experiences and social values, which might lead them to differ from the general population on this subject. Therefor we examine whether migrants prefer to organize childcare formally or informally, whether they want to increase or decrease public spending on it, and whether or not they are satisfied the childcare services produced in the country. These three dimensions of attitudes to childcare are examined using a survey collected in 2015 among natives and ten migrant groups in Denmark and the Netherlands (N=7319). The results show that migrants tend to follow the overall attitudes to childcare in the country, while generally being more positive towards formal childcare.
